No Pac-10 contact with Utah, so far

Associated Press

HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — Mountain West Conference commissioner Craig Thompson says he was told Monday by Utah’s athletic director that the university had not been contacted by the Pac-10.

Thompson was attending a meeting of conference commissioners in northern California on Tuesday. Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott was not in attendance.

Thompson says Scott has not contacted him since the Pac-10’s invitation to Texas was declined Monday. The Pac-10 was hoping to add the Longhorns and four other Big 12 schools to form a 16-team conference. But Texas and the rest decided to stay put. The Pac-10 is one member short of the 12 it needs to hold a football championship game.

Utah has been speculated as being the Pac-10’s next target.
